European Business Unit Director

We are looking for a new leader for our European business unit to take us into the next stage of our growth journey. An exciting opportunity for a strong industry expert to shape the future of our European business.

Our new European Business Unit Director will lead teams across the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK, translating market insight into targeted, value add products and services for our customers.

Germains is a seed technology business working with seed breeders and growers across the world to enhance the genetic potential of seed performance to Maximise Nature’s Potential®. We are part of the AB Sugar division within Associated British Foods, and have sites across the UK, EU, and North America. Germains is a small yet complex multi-site/ multi-function business with a fastpaced environment and lots of challenge and opportunity.

This business-critical role has regional P&L ownership as well as functional responsibility for R&D, Commercial, Operations, Finance and HR, and is a key member of the global leadership team.

We are looking for someone who will flourish in an environment of autonomy and ambiguity, laying the path for innovation and growth. We encourage intellectual curiosity and an innovative mind set.

Germains has a culture of empowerment, trust and inclusion and places its people at the heart of the business. As part of our agile working culture, whereby we measure output not input, location and working pattern for this role are not fixed. We envision this role to be predominately based in the Netherlands, but frequent travel across Europe and the UK will be required.
